CellPoint Digital

Putting a payment category pioneer in air and travel onto the global stage


CellPoint Digital, the world’s leading payment orchestration platform (then known as CellPoint Mobile), was an early pioneer in enabling payments on mobile devices. As the Danish startup expanded into new markets and verticals, including air and travel, it needed a communications partner experienced in these sectors to help refine its messaging and develop an aggressive global marketing and visibility strategy for its next growth phase. As the company grew from a team of 30 to over 150 people, THINKINK worked closely with the company’s leadership team, evolving its product messaging and sales strategies, and served as CellPoint Digital’s fully outsourced marketing and communications team for over five years.


We initially focused on messaging for several solutions and product updates, launching Apple Pay with Emirates Airlines and conducting several roadshows to educate the broader airline community about the importance of improving their payment capabilities. We developed multiple communications strategies targeting airlines, ground transportation and rail operators, regionally and globally, and set up and managed CellPoint Digital’s presence at industry conferences targeting buyers within those sectors. Our strategies combined media relations and PR, thought leadership content, buyer education programs, industry research and trade association engagement, as well as industry conferences and events.
